Cases of Teaching Design and Innovation
- 159 Downloads
This chapter describes two practice-based cases of teaching design and innovation. The aim of the undergraduate case studies was to instil design and innovation competences in students of both engineering and business disciplines. The cases involved student teams working with multi-national subsidiaries and incubation centre start-ups. The cases will demonstrate how the concept of phronesis, presented in Chap. 2; the concept of responsibility, presented in Chap. 3; and the concept of reflection, presented in Chap. 5, have been applied in a real-life educational context. The learning from the cases will be used to develop a generic process called simulation-action learning (SAL) which will be outlined in Chap. 7. In addition, an objective of this book is also to contribute to practitioner education in the area of design and innovation. Consequently, a third industry-based case study provides an example of research-informed teaching that influenced the development of SAL.
